Construction work is ongoing to replace the old footbridge to the reserve. An alternative route is available, but the Heron's Wing and Peter Scott hides will be closed until the work is complete. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Walk with a Warden - August

August's walk will look at the kaleidoscopic array of damselflies and dragonflies that spark across the ponds and paths during the summer, and many other seasonal highlights and wildlife. What we'll see will depend on the weather and what's about on the day.

Venture out onto the wetland nature reserve with friendly expert guidance on hand to help you spot some of the season's best highlights. Get insider wildlife tips and all of your questions answered. You'll learn how to look for the subtle signs and tracks you may never have noticed before and how to identify a broad range of different species.

Our walks with a warden are suitable for everyone. We follow even, accessible paths and tailor each walk to the group on the day. Whether you're a complete beginner or a seasoned wildlife pro, we guarantee you will get something from exploring the wetlands with us!

The walk will last about 90 minutes but you don't have to commit to the full walk - if you're short of time you can dip out along the way.

No need to book, just be at the Info Desk for an 11:30 start.
